Your Revered Chef’s Guide to Preparing a Deconstructed Cucumber Sandwich

milk-bottle1 Wheat Cucumber on White

Nowadays it seems to be de rigueur to offer some “deconstructed” dish on you menu. Your Revered Chef will show you how to enchant your gustes with a deconstructed recipe for the ubiquitous Cucumber Sandwich: Get some wheat from your local cooperative, then buy a fresh cucumber and and some fresh milk from your local retailer.

Place the sliced cucumber next to some wheat grains and pour some milk. Sprinkle with some lemon juice, add a pinch of salt and pepper and garnish with some watercress … and here you are! Your guests will be totally stunned!

A Château d’Yquem goes fairly well with this!

Always Enjoy!

    Dear Revered Chef,

    kudos to you for picking up on current trends in culinary cooking. I’ve had to try this at once – however my guests were not as stunned as expected! Maybe because I served a Montbazillac instead of a Château d’Yquem with the deconstructed sandwich.

    Dear Freddie,

    obviously you did a correct root cause analysis: The Montbazillac is much too coarse to harmonize with the subtle tastes of the deconstructed cucumber sandwich.

    Always Enjoy!

    Cher Revered Chef,

    pourqoi un dish Anglais? Pourquoi pas des “Moules-Frites Déconstruites a la Mode Grande Nation”?

    Dear Beauregard,

    if you want to prepare the “Moules-Frites Déconstruites a la Mode Grande Nation”, simply replace the wheat grains with blue mussels and the cucumber with potatoes in the original recipe. Leave out the watercress, though!

    Always Enjoy!
